I didn't know what to expect from this but I found it to be a very sensitive, well-told story. The film is keen on small little details and it's very concerned with exploring the perceptions and reactions of the people around you throughout an experience like this. There is one very manipulative, cheap shot at the end (you'll see it when you get to it) that served no purpose and put a bitter taste in my mouth, but aside from that careless and shockingly contrived scene the rest of the film is very good.
